Elections for local and regional authority representatives traditionally attract less attention than parliamentary elections, but can still feature vigorous battles. This 1986 photo of hoardings, mostly for candidates for Wellington City Council's eastern ward, shows that – because the maximum size of each hoarding was limited by law – four Labour candidates have joined forces to deliver a joint message on the need to improve Wellington’s sewerage system. The other two hoardings are for candidates standing on the rival Citizens and Ratepayers ticket.
